We are traveling in France visiting the WWII battlefields in Normandy. Seeing where so many gave their lives for freedom is very moving and makes alive the many stories my father told me about his WWII experiences.
It all reminds me of the evil we saw played out ten years ago today when the US was attacked. It also reminds me of the heroic firefighters who went up the steps of the twin towers while encouraging others to hurry down and out.
The WWII generation is often referred to as the "Greatest Generation." The 9/11 responders remind us that there is greatness in every generation.
